Recorded during the 1998 split-up, these are the last sessions of Superelvis with their charismatic singer Anki Toner. These recordings were discovered and mixed by Raimon some months later. Although Alfredo thought it wasn't a good idea, the others went on with the project. The final editing and production was done by Anki in the autumn of 1999.

|v.a. - Never Underestimate Human Stupidity [HR031] - File Under Toner|
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE HUMAN STUPIDITY THE MOST STUPID RECORD EVER? You know what? We tried to make the most stupid record ever. And of course we failed. It was a stupid idea in the first place. But having a stupid idea should be a good place to start, shouldn't it? Of course, it isn't. There is a big difference between doing a stupid piece of music and TRYING TO DO one. Some artists featured in this compilation did not try to make a stupid piece of music: they just unearthed the most stupid track ...

Aquest treball sonor és un recull d'obres musicals que daten des del 1997 fins al 2005.

|Violeta Gomez - Candylove [HR041] - Violeta Gomez|
Although Violeta Gomez is better known as a singer-songwriter (or as a controversial photographer), this album features a bunch of instrumental low-fi pop tracks recorded on an old Roland SH-101 synth, with just some sparse vocal overdubs. And although she defines it as "a toy record", the subtitles reads "a journey to the center of desire". Of course, the latter is truer than the former since this album, as all Violeta's recent work, explores the relation between innocence and lust.
